Real Madrid were dealt a fresh injury scare earlier this week when Brahim Diaz had to leave the field against RB Leipzig with a calf issue.

After having scored a stunning goal, that would prove to be the match-winner, the 24-year-old attacking midfielder hobbled off the pitch in the 84th minute with what looked like an injury.

Brahim was supposed to undergo tests yesterday, but Real Madrid decided to wait another day and subject the Spaniard to medical examinations today.

No injury to Brahim

Now, AS is reporting that any concerns within the Real Madrid camp regarding Brahim Diaz’s condition have been put to ease as the 24-year-old has not sustained an injury.

The Merengues preferred to wait until today, to give the muscle time before carrying out the relevant tests.

Earlier today the Real Madrid doctors analysed the condition of the former Manchester City man, with the diagnosis after the MRI scan being the best possible result.

As Brahim expected after the match, there is no injury. Indeed, there is no damage to the fibres, no rupture but instead a blow to the area, with the consequent inflammation.

In fact, the report from AS claims that Brahim has already trained today, putting him in the fray for the weekend’s La Liga clash against Rayo Vallecano.

This ought to come as a major relief for Carlo Ancelotti and Real Madrid, considering that they are already without Jude Bellingham, who is nursing an ankle injury.

Brahim, despite not being a regular starter, has managed to score eight and assist three goals in all competitions this season, proving his worth to this Real Madrid side.

Real Madrid will sign off on their successful La Liga campaign today with a fixture against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu.

The game, being seen as a final preparation for the UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, sees manager Carlo Ancelotti field his strongest possible lineup.

All eyes will obviously be on the retiring Toni Kroos, who bids goodbye to the Bernabeu in what will be his final home game as a Real Madrid player.

The German international starts in the centre of the park alongside Federico Valverde, while Eduardo Camavinga slots in as the No. 6.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid captain, Nacho Fernandez, also starts in what could be his last game at the Bernabeu as well.

Nacho pairs up with Antonio Rudiger in defence, flanked by the full-back pairing of Dani Carvajal and Ferland Mendy. Thibaut Courtois starts in goal ahead of Andriy Lunin and Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Up front, Vinicius Jr. starts in attack, partnering up with Rodrygo Goes. Top scorer Jude Bellingham occupies the attacking midfield role for Real Madrid.
